1998 Honda Questions and Answers


  • Flat Towing Setup Recommendations for a 1998 Honda CR-V
  • For your 1998 Honda CR-V you would want a Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 1528-3. The Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 1418-1 that you referenced is vehicle specific to the 1991-2001 Jeep Cherokees. There is not anything you could purchase separately or modify on these to have it work on your CR-V. For a tow bar I would recommend the RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-576. This comes with safety cables, quick disconnects, and wiring. I attached installation instructions for...

  • Is there a Fairing that Will Fit the SportRack Roof Rack # SR1003
  • The SportRack roof rack # SR1003 uses square bars like those found in a Thule roof rack. You will want the fairing to about the same length as the distance between the legs that hold the crossbars. The 44 inch model would probably work, # TH8702. Or, if a longer one is needed, # TH8703, is 52 inches long. However, the SportRack bars are a little smaller than the Thule bars so it will not be the best fit.

  • Base Plate Recommendations for Flat Towing a 1998 Honda Civic 5-Speed Transmission
  • After some research, I have found that your 1998 Honda Civic with a 5-speed manual transmission can be flat-towed without the need for a dolly. For your car, the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 510-1 is a compatible fit, regardless of whether your vehicle has fog lights or not. This base plate kit features removable brackets to lessen the visibility of the kit when not in use. The drawbars can be removed via 2 pins and the kit requires no welding for installation. These base plates will...

This assembly includes bearings, races, seal, grease cap, wheel bolts and lug nuts. I have attached a photo of the hub and have the hub length noted on the photo.

  • Will the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack # TH963PRO Fit a 1998 Honda CR-V

  • Available Types of Trailer Coupler Locks
  • We do offer coupler locks that allow you to secure an unhitched trailer. These can be seen on the linked page. These locks include types like the EZ Lock Trailer Coupler Lock # BLTL-20 which works along with a pad lock that you supply, such as # ML40D. We do not offer any lock products intended to secure a hitch ball to a ball mount. Usually hitch balls will be torqued (according to the manufacturer's instructions) to a degree that would make it hard to unscrew the nut that holds the...

  • How to Attach a Tow Bar to the Roadmaster # 1528-1 Base Plate on 1998 Honda CRV
  • The method of connection will depend on which manufacturers tow bar you are using. Some vehicles use a base plate kit that features removable draw bars, which might be what you have (see photo). The type of base plate for the 1998 CRV uses standard base plates, which are not removable. There is also a base plate kit, # 1528-3 that would allow the draw bars to be removed. For a Roadmaster tow bar, you would use a set of quick disconnects, part # RM-201. One half of the disconnect would...

  • I checked with Kat's and for your 1998 Honda Civic with 1.6 liter motor heater # KH11419 installs at the front right of the motor as seen from the driver's seat. So front would be at the front of the vehicle and right is passenger's side.

  • Height Of The Thule Tracker II With Base
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Thule and the Replacement Railing Foot for Thule Tracker II Foot Pack # 753-2152 along with the base # 753-2149 will give you about a 7 inch height when combined. This will clear your 4 inch object with a little room to spare even if directly under the crossbar.

  • Rear Jacking Point Recommendation for a 1998 Honda Civic EX with a Draw Tite Hitch Installed
  • All the part numbers you mentioned will work great together and on your 1998 Honda Civic EX. The # 24677 Class I Draw Tite hitch would be an excellent choice for a hitch on your vehicle and the Swagman XC # S64650 that you referenced is compatible with Class I hitches so it should work well for you. The Locking Anti-Rattle, Threaded Hitch Pin # S64029 will also work with the XC bike rack and would do a great job to reduce movement of the bike rack in the hitch. I did some checking...

In some applications on vehicles with short and/or curved roof lines what is known as a short roof adapter, part # SR1116, is required to properly secure the rack on such vehicles. Your 1998 Civic 4-door does not require this short roof adapter. I have linked an installation video and the written instructions for this rack, for your reference. SportRack specifies the...

  • What Trailer Hitches are Available for the 1998 Honda Odyssey
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 1998 Honda Odyssey are Class II hitches with the 1-1/4 inch receiver. A 2 inch hitch is not available. What you may be able to do is use an adapter. However, first I must warn you that the use of an adapter reduces the trailer hitch tongue weight by 50 percent. For example with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 36204, that you have referenced, it normally has a tongue weight capacity of 300 pounds. With a 1-1/4 to 2 inch adapter installed, it drops to...

You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out 10-1/2 inches.

  • The Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH9006XT, is listed as a fit on a 1998 Honda Civic Coupe or Sedan. It is designed to work with most factory spoilers. It is not listed as a fit for aftermarket spoilers. When installing the # TH9006XT bike carrier on a vehicle with a spoiler, the straps on the bike rack should not be against the spoiler, otherwise the spoiler could be damaged when the straps are tightened down.

It will not the fit the 2-door or hatchback versions of the car. However, this rack does not fit the 2002 Chevrolet Impala. The equivalent SportRack roof rack nearest to the SR1010 that DOES fit your Impala is their # SR1002 that also uses the same 50-inch square crossbars and which offers the same 130-lb weight capacity. I have linked videos for both...

I have linked you to our Roof Rack FAQ page, that has more information about roof racks.

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 1998 Honda Accord

  • What are Husky Liner Floor Mats Made Of and are They Legal in California
  • The floor mats, # HL51011, are made from a rubberized thermoplastic material which means rubber and plastic. I do not believe that California considers rubber and plastic to be harmful, and certainly not when used as a floor mat. I spoke with my contact at Husky Liners to verify and she stated that the mats are approved for sale in all 50 states.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1998 Honda Civic
  • The Draw Tite hitch part # 24822 that you referenced has towing capacities of 2,000 lbs total trailer weight and 200 lbs tongue weight. That would be more than enough for your trailer but you would still need to check the towing capacities of your 1998 Honda Civic to be sure that your vehicle also is rated for towing that weight. For trailer wiring you would want the part # 119178KIT. For a ball mount you would want the part # 35090, for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256 and then for...

  • Can a Canoe be Carried on the Roof of a 1998 Honda Prelude
  • To carry a canoe on a vehicle that does not have roof rack you can use a universal foam block carrier, # SR5525. The roof on a 1998 Honda Prelude is pretty short and if your canoe is long then there may be too much front and back overhang to carry the canoe safely. You will also need to check the weight capacity of the roof to determine if it can support the canoe. This information may be located in the owners manual.

  • Recommended Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 1998 Honda Civic
  • You can certainly install a hitch on your Civic. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24677. This is a quality, but also the most economical choice for your Civic. For a cargo carrying tray, I'd recommend you go with the Curt 24x48, part # C18110. This carrier has an angled shank that will raise the floor of the carrier up over 3 inches above the top of the receiver opening, for additional ground clearance which is important when backing downhill out of driveways.
